NCC receives construction contract in Nordhavnen, Copenhagen worth MSEK 265

NCC has been commissioned by the Marmorbyen limited partnership to build 133 rental units in Copenhagen’s Nordhavnen district. The order is worth SEK 265 million.

“We are pleased to have been entrusted with the task of building yet another exciting housing project along Marmormolen Wharf in Copenhagen’s Nordhavnen district, a project that will allow us to be involved in providing Copenhageners with a new, attractive residential area with elegant, environmentally friendly housing units in beautiful surroundings,” says Klaus Kaae, Business Area Manager for NCC Construction Denmark.

The apartments will be built on the wharf’s eastern island, adjacent to Copenhagen’s UN City. Energy and environmental performance will be top priorities during the construction of the housing project and the apartments will have a prime location with ample natural light and a view over Copenhagen Harbor. Most of the apartments will be three and four-room units, with an average floor space of 105 square meters.

The vision for the housing project is to create a residential area with an emphasis on diversity that is suitable for a range of people of varying ages and takes full advantage of its unique location near both the city center and the water. The residential area will be located on an island bordered by two canals, giving the area a canal-city feeling.

Considerable effort has been devoted to designing outdoor environments for the residents, with inspiring, attractive courtyards creating a striking contrast to the open sea. All of the housing units will be equipped with private balconies or small gardens. The residential area will be located near central Copenhagen, in close proximity to the local Nordhavn train station.

Construction will begin in August 2015 and is expected to be completed in late 2016. The order will be registered during the fourth quarter of 2014 in the NCC Construction Denmark business area.
